Budget Travel magazine is accepting nominations for “15 Places Kids Should See Before 15.” I nominated Citi Field for obvious reasons: baseball is America’s Pastime, and where else can a kid meet Mr. Met?
Please go to the Budget Travel website and vote a “thumbs up” for Citi Field.
Regardless of how disappointed you are with the way the Mets are looking lately, or how you feel about the financial and legal situations, we are all Mets fans, we are all baseball fans, Citi Field is in fact a nice place to watch a ballgame, and wouldn’t we rather have a kid watch baseball in Flushing rather than, say, the Bronx or Philadelphia? Lord knows we don’t need any more Yankees fans or Phillies fans on this planet.
Go here to vote for Citi Field. Scroll down, find Citi field, click on the “thumbs up” button, and add in any comments if you wish.
